North Carolina DWI Death Prompts Proposal for Tracking Illegal Immigrants

ASSOCIATED PRESS



GASTONIA, North Carolina (AP) -- Reacting to the death of a North Carolina man in drunken driving accident involving an illegal immigrant, U.S. Rep. Sue Myrick on Monday unveiled a proposal that she said would make local police more responsible for tracking illegal immigrants.

Myrick named the ''Scott Gardner Act'' after the man killed in an apparent drunken driving wreck July 16 in Brunswick County. Ramiro Gallegos of Mexico, convicted of driving while intoxicated three times but never deported, faces second-degree murder charges in the wreck.

Gardner's family attended Monday's news conference but did not speak. Gardner's wife, Tina, was critically injured and remains hospitalized. Their children, 5-year-old Jackson and 2-year-old Avery, suffered minor injuries.

The legislation would require all state and local law enforcement agencies to report immigration status, deportation orders and failures to appear to the FBI's National Crime Information Center database within 30 days of an incident.

Officials would also have to enter all driving while impaired convictions into the database. DWIs, a misdemeanor, would become a deportable offense
and judges would have access to national data for better sentencing, Myrick said.

''No more excuses,'' Myrick said. ''No more endless appeals. You're drunk. You're driving. You're illegal. You're deported. Period.''


Hell yes! About time.

''No more excuses,'' Myrick said. ''No more endless appeals. You're drunk. You're driving. You're illegal. You're deported. Period.''




What he should have said is: "You're illegal, you're deported. Period".


Hey I can dream, right?

That would require some huge policy changes and minor immigration law changes that GWB is never going to sign off on.

What's sad is that this is an attempt to be hard on illegal aliens. This is pathetic. They are fucking Illegal!! They don't have drivers licenses. They don't have insurance. They're in the country Illegally. But that's all ok... It's when they cross the line and break a law like DUI. That is where we draw the line. hinking.gif

Oh well...Send em back anyway you can I guess.

Yeah, this makes about as much sense as "Joe Shmoe proposes sending rapists to jail!"
